Happy New Year's and a Holiday Recap

Happiest of New Years to you all.  I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season.  To recap, my Christmas was great.  Brandon and I didn't give much to each other, but Cade absolutely adored his presents, and I had so much fun watching him open up all his presents.  The dreaded shark blimp went over well, I think.  Brandon and Cade loved nothing more than scaring the crap out of me with it.  I never knew when I was going to turn around to find a giant shark face all up in my grill, and not far off, I'd hear Brandon and Cade tittering while working the remote control that moves the shark.  What a hoot, guys, I love being scared out of my mind by a silent, stealthy shark that's bigger than me.  Awesome.  I won't be watching Jaws anytime soon, that's for sure.  :)

New Year's Eve was okay too, though I'm usually so sick to death of holiday stuff, that by the time New Year's comes around, I'm just ready to go to bed and wake up to a new year and get back to my routine.  Holidays are fun but I'm just plain holiday-ed out by now.

 I got to see my sister and her family though, here from Colorado, and I also got to see my sis-in-law and her kiddos, while my brother is stationed in Honduras, so that was awesome to spend time with them.  That's probably why holidays are best - to see family and loved ones that you haven't seen in awhile.

 Anyway, sorry I've been kind of quiet lately - December was kind of a rough month for me, and I'm hoping that 2012 will be better.  I have set no resolutions because I already know I won't keep them.  Why set goals when you can low-ball?  Yeah, the pessimism is coming out, so maybe I should stop here...

Hope to post soon and more often!  Enjoy pics of my baby girl - I can't get enough of her.

I want a shark of this Shark blimp. It sounds interesting.


Agreed- December was a rough month. But look at us: we both made it through. Pure amazingness! :
Stay well!
